In the past, porcelain crowns and bridges were built on a metal core, which provided enough strength to withstand the tremendous biting forces exerted on the teeth. It is this metal core that is responsible for the dark blue line at the edge of many crowns.
As a result of recent breakthroughs in adhesives and stronger porcelain materials, crowns and bridges can now be made entirely from porcelain, eliminating the problem of a dark line at the edge of the gum. We offer porcelain crowns, bridges, and veneers with custom staining using a lab tech. All porcelain crowns, bridges, and veneers are the natural choice for enhancing your smile.
